Rights grab update: Inside Magazine sees sense

10 September 2001 - EPUK

Rapid action by EPUK and other photographers has brought a speedy resolution to what could have been a difficult problem when Inside Communications attempted a rights grab on photographers. Inside Communications, publishers of Inside Housing, say that all photographers need do is delete the copyright clause in the letter sent to them last month.

As we reported on EPUK, photographers stood to lose their entire copyright and moral rights for freelance work commissioned by Inside Housing magazine.

It now appears that the letters were issued by Inside in order to cover themselves against the Inland Revenue. The letters did not originate from the picture department, whose first knowledge of the matter was irate photographers on the phone.

EPUK’s contact with Inside has been friendly and we have offered advice where asked for. Inside seem like nice people to do business with – if only other publishers would follow their lead.
